Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Question Day

I have several questions for today, I will break them up as time permits while I'm at work. If anyone has any answers they would be greatly appreciated.

I had it on the Dead channel on Siruius this morning mostly because the wife was out of the room and I was able to commandeer the tv. But anyways, they were playing a song titled "human sculpture" or "people sculpture." I haven't ever heard or seen this. It sounded like a drums thing.
Anyone out there have any info on what it is? Thanks.

Hey Joe - it was likely 'Crowd Sculpture' - track one on the Infrared Roses album.

That's probably it, I was working on about half a cup when it was on this morning and I couldn't quite remember what the title was.
I have never listened to Infared Roses, is it worth picking up?

If you enjoy the Space segments of a show then I'd say yes, it is, because basically it's a collection of Space extracts from the late 80s/early 90s. Speaking for myself I find a lot to enjoy in it.

posting because recently discussed; i don't own it, so can't give an opinion (not that would normally stop me).

if you can get it relatively cheap, i'd say get it. it's a pretty interesting mix. nothing jawdropping but worth a few listens. good background music too.

i havent listened to it in quite awhile - now i'm gonna have to break it out again :)

Got me thinking about it again too. Blowing the dust off and loading into iTunes as I type!

I used to own it, got it in a large collection of Dead CDs off of ebay a couple of years ago. It's interesting, but ultimately I decided that it wasn't for me and sold it to FYE (CD/DVD store for those unfamiliar) and they gave me $3 for it...which is more than what I paid for the CD in the first place (I think the ebay deal was about 12 CDs for about $25 or something like that). I don't miss it.

Some of those spaces might be good for sound effects in a haunted house. Halloween is on the way...

If you want to have everything Grateful Dead in your collection, then get it. Or if you really like listening to avant-garde musical experimentation, or as it's more commonly known, Space, then that's another reason to put it on your shopping list. Otherwise I would not necessarily recommend it.

I used to enjoy the Spaces more when I got high. Now it's something I need to be in the mood for. Sometimes I really dig them and sometimes they just sound very dissonant.
I think I'll try and find a cheap copy like Dire said.
Thanks.

I'd say the one commercial release that really is non-essential is the Twilight Zone album. Really nothing to write home about on that one.

Must not be. Can't say that I was ever really aware there was such a thing.

There you go. Sample a sound or two if you wish, but I reckon your wallet will stay safely in your pocket.
